How do you write 23.6 in scientific notation?

(2) Answers

The first factor must be at least 1 and less than 10. The second factor must be a power of 10. Move the decimal point to the left until the number is between 1 and 10. Count how many places you move the decimal point.23.6 → 2.36 You moved the decimal point 1 place to the left. The power of 10 is 10 to the power of 1 23.6 = 2.36 × 10 to the power of 1


In scientific notation you have to have the decimal after the first digit so you would write 2.36*10^#.
